Mitsubishi has a long and fruitful history of motorsport, both in the Dakar and the World Rally Championship. However, the Japanese company has been largely absent from the market for a long period of time. Indeed, after the brand with the three diamonds closed Ralliart in 2010, his sporting activities have been significantly reduced. Indeed, the closing of the brand’s high-performance division resulted in the Ralliart logo being relegated to a line of accessories for the Japanese manufacturer’s automobiles. However, this fact has flipped 180 degrees.
Ralliart has been resurrected from its ruins with nocturnal and almost treacherous actions. And it is precisely in the act of presenting the 2020 financial report that the Asian conglomerate announced Ralliart’s resurrection. A resurrection that, in principle, shifts away from the brand’s subsidiary sports ventures in countries such as Spain in order to form a global competition initiative. There is no additional information or records, making it difficult to determine whether the rebirth of Ralliart is intended to compete in the Dakar with a hybrid vehicle or to return to the World Rally Championship in some capacity.
Now we must wait to see how Ralliart is reborn., a department established in the early 1980s by former pilot Andrew Cowan. It will be difficult to re-green the laurels of a project that won four World Rally Championship titles in the 1990s with Tommi Mäkinen and up to 12 Dakar victories between 1982 and the end of the brand’s sports program. In sum, it’ll be fascinating to learn what you’re thinking. Mitsubishi and the short-term programs that you may pursue. In Japan, rumors abound, though Mitsubishi’s SUV gamble suggests a return to raids rather than speed rallies.
